The's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“What a super time we had! This was our first time in China and we had no idea what to expect or how to set about planning what to see! So very many thanks to Travel China Guide for doing such an excellent job in arranging the tour programme, the guides and the drivers.....we couldn't have asked for better. And many thanks to our travel consultant Kelly Wang for doing such an excellent schedule for us. The cars were excellent: new vehicles, always clean and well presented. We had super experienced drivers - especially useful on the 'exciting' motorways that you find in China! The little extras such as the bottles of water everyday in the car, the driver helping us in an out of the vehicle and loading up the luggage, manoeuvring the car close to the entrance and exits of the sites made the whole experience very enjoyable and memorable. The guides were excellent, well educated, helpful, engaging and so knowledgeable about China in the broadest sense: they could not only talk about the tourist sites but were also able to talk about the geography and history of China in its broadest context. No problems with the language as all our guides spoke very good English. Many thanks to Travel China Guide for making our first trip to China such a fun and memorable experience. We are already looking forward to our next visit!”

Geoff's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“We booked a private 3 day guided tour and were met at the airport by our guide Summer. The car was a clean modern saloon with plenty of room, was well stocked with bottled water and a very good driver. We stayed at the New Otani Chang Fu hotel which was a nice hotel with a Japanese influence. Summer was the perfect guide speaking great English and having a great deal of knowledge and passion about the sights we visited. Whilst not part of the package Summer recommended a restaurant for lunch one day and the food was fantastic. Summer listened to what we the clients wanted and adjusted her approach accordingly. I have visited China on many occasions with my work but never had the opportunity to do any sightseeing so to have the ability to be taken to some beautiful Chinese historical sites and be given just the right amount of background information was perfect. Would definitely recommend this tour company as the communication and organisation was perfect and the guide couldn't have been better.”
